Actually, the Abrams 2009 movie didn't take much, if anything from ENT. It was based on TOS more than anything. However, TNG/DS9/VOY are all very much primary timeline, it's been stated before that the Abrams timeline is an alternate timeline. Much like the Mirror Universe is similar, but not exact to the Prime Universe. In fact, on that line, every moment of your own actual life spawns an infinite number of alternate realities spanning every possible decision that you make. A perfect example of that was the old TV series "Sliders", where Quinn and his fellow lost travelers jumped to world after world, each slightly different from their "prime" universe.
